Save the Persecuted Christians, will unveil its evolution from an informal coalition into a new, national non-profit organization and movement a-building on January 17, 2019.

The goal of the SaveUs movement is to mobilize Americans to stand in the gap for the 215 million Christians worldwide experiencing brutal violence and abuse for their faith. In moving from an informal coalition to a new national non-profit the goal remains the same. The capacity to help accomplish this vital mission will, however, be considerably greater.

Christianity.com reports that more Christians died for their faith in the last century than through all the years since Jesus’ day combined.

Unfortunately, the mass persecution of Christians is increasingly characterizing our time, as well.

In fact, the Center for the Study of Global Christianity estimates that between 2005 and 2015, 900,000 Christians were martyred.

The Christian population of Iraq alone has plunged from 1.5 million in 2003 to 275,000.

Experts believe that number could soon go to zero. According to the Center for Studies on New Religions, in the past two years, Christians were the most persecuted group in the world. Despite the best efforts of many faith leaders and organizations in the West, the rapes, church burnings, crucifixions, enslavement and murders of Christians continues in the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere.
This must stop.

One way to generate the necessary public support and political will to address this issue is through Save the Persecuted Christians sign campaign.

The inspiration for this campaign came from the campaign to save Soviet Jewry, the centerpiece of which was the prominent display of signage outside of synagogues across America to call attention to the plight of those persecuted Jews. It engaged worshipers, passers-by, journalists, business leaders and politicians, alike. It also inspired mass demonstrations in the United States and overseas.

There are, obviously, numerous differences between saving Soviet Jewry from the oppression of one, albeit very powerful, country and saving Christians from the persecution they are facing worldwide. Still, the possibility of using techniques that proved successful in the former case to help with the latter challenge cannot be ignored, given the stakes. That is especially so in light of the opportunity presented by today’s social media to help exponentially raise awareness and enlist support worldwide – a force-multiplying capability unavailable to, indeed unimaginable for, the previous generation’s human rights and religious freedom advocates.

The official launch of the new SaveUS movement is January 17, 2019 during the Persecuted for Christ coordinated press conferences.
